My concentration failed me this week. I tried not thinking too much about the proportions and just getting on with the drawing as I did last week but it just wasn't happening. I had to rush there again this week and the bus got hit by a car just yards from the stop - nothing major, in fact by Kuwaiti standards almost insignificant! But it was clear as soon as I got out my pencil and paper that the lines weren't going to flow. I think the drawing looks OK but it was a big struggle.
I became aware of a pain and constriction in my throat and I realised I was reacting to someone's perfume. I was also thinking about how difficult it is to draw sometimes and yet there is an expectation, from myself and I imagine from others, to improve. Some days it's enough of a struggle just to get a decent likeness!
There was a funny moment though during the session when the model's mobile phone rang and he whispered "I'm sorry, I can't talk right now"! Yeah, me too!
B and 3B pencil.
